Setback could wipe out season for Andy Dirks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yet another setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury could prevent Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks from playing major league baseball this season. He has been out all year after back surgery.

Dirks reinjured his hamstring Sunday night while running the bases for Triple-A Toledo. It was the second game of his latest rehab stint.

"Depending on how bad the hamstring is, I don't want to write him off," Brad Ausmus told MLive.com. "But it'd be tough at this point."

The Tigers have not yet recalled Dirks from his rehab assignment, which is his third in less than two months. An announcement is expected Wednesday, a day after an MRI on the hamstring, the results of which has yet to be revealed. Dirks remains on the 60-day disabled list.

J.J. Hardy: Left thumb injury still affecting me
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Despite a mini-tear at the plate, Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is still affected by a left thumb injury that had him out for a week earlier in the month, per the Baltimore Sun.

"Maybe I'm not trying to do too much because I can't," he said. "That's my only explanation, but [the thumb injury] is definitely not in the past. ... Swings and misses don't feel good. I've just got to limit that."

Hardy is 7 for 20 with a home run since his return. He has fanned just twice during that stretch.
